We promised ourselves that this newsletter would not go out until we have our non-profit status in Rwanda sorted out … But, our friends, bureaucracy wins again! As the registration drags on, our travel section is busier than ever. Here’s what’s new:
we have decided to go public with our registration struggles, hoping that would help us officially exist before the first international volunteers arrive in March
February was full of tours and activities; we would sometimes have 3 different things happening in Uganda and Rwanda on the same day
Rwanda has extended the pandemic discounts into 2023; those who live anywhere in Africa can still visit gorillas for USD 500 only
while Congo’s Goma and Virunga NP remain off-limits for tourism, Bukavu and Kahuzi-Biega NP with Grauer’s gorillas would be more than glad to receive you!
